Owner & Production Manager

Organizing our workload daily, in an efficient manner, is my strong suit. I love problem solving and it helps when I am surrounded by such positive minded people, with great work ethics.

Humor and music get us over the hump on those challenging days. When you love what you do and who you are spending your days with, is it really work?

Co-Owner & Production Manager

Whatever Kel needs that’s what I do. I am constantly moving and doing. If it’s squeaky clean, that’s me. If our mica’s look beautiful and organized, that’s me. I am a team player through and through.

 

My detective work is top notch, I stop at nothing to solve problems. As long as the music is blasting and we’re having fun, all is right with the world.

Personal Assistant

If the girls need anything, I mean ANYTHING, I am at their disposal.

 

A contractor by trade I’m a pretty handy guy. Soap cutter wires break?, call Bob. Need to move a barrel of oil?, call Bob. I take care of shipping, picking up stock and helping the girls maintain a well oiled machine.

 

I’m very proud of the company Kelli and April have built, proud to have such a birds eye view and be such an integral part.

Austin: Production Assistant

Point me in a direction, I’m a  quick study and wicked smart! I have loved learning the whole process of soap making and I love the responsibility I am entrusted with.

 

Working with the ladies is interesting to say the least and I love to interject my dry humor and watch as it slowly dawns on them what I have just said. Lots of music and laughs make the time pass quickly.

Isabella: Packaging Assistant

I love being busy. We’ll often get a large order that needs to be on its way quickly, that’s when I shine. I keep my nose to the grindstone until all work is finished and out the door. 

 

I take my responsibilities seriously and love my work environment. I am pretty soft-spoken and try to be kind to everyone. I love working with my mother, April.

Patrick: Administrator

First of all, I’m pretty sure they keep me around because of my incredible good looks and sharp wit.

 

It also may have something to do with the fact that I am very responsible, timely, great with computers, and never say no to whatever they may toss my way.

 

 Favorite Quote: "Life is good with good soap".

Andy: Photographer

I am definitely an outside of the box thinker. Although I love coming up with new ways to photograph soap and the process, my first love is veterinarian studies.

 

I breed rodents and reptiles and have managed to amass quite an extended family. I use Plain Jane on all of my reptiles as well as the scented bars for my rat babies. If I don’t have something nice to say, I tend to stay silent.

The Fun Squad

Our friendship formed several years ago while April was managing my store. When it became apparent that soap making was becoming more than a hobby April was instrumental in taking the business to the next level and became my partner. 

 

April adores rhinestones and glitter while I prefer wrought iron and stone giving us each a different perspective and insight.

 

We play off each others strengths and weakness to cover all of our bases. We both think that we’re funny as hell and it must be true because we’ve been told that we are quite entertaining.

As a licensed Tatoo artist, I like to think I’m pretty good at flexing my creative muscles. I am meticulous, reliable and love working in our open creative atmosphere. Whether we’re designing new packaging or choosing soap colors, I love to be involved.
